After emerging winners of Chibuku road to fame music competition, Andiamo Music school Band has won the recognition of the national music body- Music Association of Malawi (MAM).
“Moyo ndi Mpamba” campaign recently approached MAM to provide reputable bands and musicians to enter into a contract for its live shows aimed at spreading health messages.
Though new on the block, Andiamo Music School Band was one of the bands shortlisted. It was entrusted to relay Malaria prevention messages through songs at the live shows.
The band kept its graph rising, after mesmerising the audience with its unique lively performance with a taste of traditional Malipenga dance.
Head of Music Andiamo music school, an arm of Andiamo youth cooperative trust Thom Damba said this is a proof that the band is doing something commendable.
“It means we are doing something others are able to notice. There are numerous bands and musicians who started way back before us, but we were among the chosen few,” said Damba.
He commended other veteran musicians who they shared the stage with, for cordial relationship during the shows held in Lilongwe and Zomba recently.
Other notable artists Andiamo music school band shared stage with included Ethel Kamwendo Banda, Skeffa Chimoto and Mlaka Maliro.
